Chuck Norris Backs Lou Dobbs on Obama Birth Records

With cable news TV personalities literally at war over the President Barack Obama birth certificate brouhaha, "Texas Ranger" action star and Mike Huckabee disciple Chuck Norris is taking his own karate chops in the so-called “birther” battle.

In a recent syndicated column featured on Creators.com, Lone Wolf McQuade proves he is not missing in action by politely but firmly chastising Obama for what he perceives as his “unwise political and leadership decision” of not letting the infamous “original” birth certificate see the light of day.

Fresh off from schooling the American public on his “6 Reasons Obama-Care Is Bad Medicine,” Norris breaks his code of silence to parse the issue that has proved to have a very stubborn staying power.

"I agree with CNN's Lou Dobbs, who was chastised by his own media outlet for demanding the release of your original birth certificate,” Norris writes.

On July 15, Dobbs offered up this morsel to his listeners: “I thought we were talking about a bunch of folks that were on the left, or on the right, you know, the fringe that gets a little excited about, you know, tinfoil on their heads and that sort of thing. Well, guess what, folks? There are some issues here that should be really resolved. What's really crazy about this is all the president of the United States has to do is produce a birth certificate. That's all that has to be done, and it would be over.”

For his part, Norris does not shout out to the masses huddled in front of a TV screen. He chooses instead to draft his column in the form of a “Dear Mr. President” letter. It is hardly silent rage – just a homey warm missive as only the mild-mannered star could muster.

“First, happy birthday,” Norris writes. “I do hope today is an enjoyable day for you and your family. Coincidentally, I also will be celebrating this week the birth of someone dear to me, my beloved wife, Gena, whose birthday is Aug. 9.

“Speaking of birthdays . . .”

After the brief salutation, Norris indeed gets down to business, recounting to the president that he was left in a state of shock disbelief after reading that individuals were offering bounties — one for $100,000 — for any personal witness or sufficient evidence to prove Obama’s American birth.

’Trust But Verify’

“Believe it or not, I'm not writing you to challenge whether or not you were born in America, though I see nothing wrong with the American public's voicing that constitutionally based grievance with someone in your esteemed position,” Norris writes. “As one blogger wrote, after all, ‘We aren't talking about a 12-year-old qualifying to play Little League here.’ Or as Ronald Reagan once said, ‘Trust but verify.’”

Norris backpedals and leans up against the ropes a little when he concedes that he personally finds it “a bit of a groundless stretch not to believe in the birth announcements in two major Hawaiian newspapers in August 1961, in which Hawaii's Health Department would have been required to post information it received directly from hospitals.”

Right after this soft left jab, however, Norris delivers the trademark roundhouse kick to the head.

“The nation you are called to lead is experiencing a growing swell of conspirators who are convinced that you are covering up something. So why not just prove them wrong and shut them up?”

At this point, Norris shows he has done his homework by reciting a bit of Hawaiian statutory law. Case-in-point: Hawaii's Health Department does not permit inspection of public health statistics records or issue a certified copy — unless it is satisfied that the applicant has a “direct and tangible interest in the record.”

“Isn't categorically satisfying constitutional requirements for a president or answering the First Amendment grievances of hundreds of thousands of Americans or ending a national debate or healing a country's divisions enough ‘direct and tangible interest?’” Norris writes.

Norris then warns that Obama's refusal to release his original birth certificate fuels yet more debate – such as whether the elusive original document contains the Hawaiian physician's name, or whether it discloses something other than his birthplace he doesn't want others to see.

Finally, Norris beseeches the president to be mindful of his promise for an unprecedented level of openness in government. “Why not live out that transparency promise by posting your original birth certificate and end the division and debate?”

Norris signs off on another homespun note: “Well, I have a birthday to plan, so I had better get going. Again, happy birthday, Mr. President.”
